Cold draft behind glove box?

I have an 04 6 wagon with 120000 kms. I have recently noticed a very cold draft coming in the car from somewhere behind the glove box. It happens when it is cold (obviously) and while driving on the highway. Gets worse when driving into the wind but is still noticable with a tailwind. Also it doesn't seem to matter which setting the hvac system is on.:banghead: :confused:

Could this have anything to do with the cabin filter? It has never done it before and I have had the car since new. I searched the forums but can't seem to find anything. Any help would be appriciated. Cheers. :cheers:

Looking at the 07 SM drawings, guessing the blower motor unit fire wall seal where the intake air comes in from outside. Ram air seems to effect it the way you describe the condition. This is a guess--If you can get the grill removed where the O/S air comes in under the wipers you may be able to use a mirror to check it and if bad, seal it with RTV silicone sealer. Getting at the A/C unit under the dash looks to be major job.
